So the election will be over tomorrow. How nice for them.

What hurts us Canadians and the democratic process is the decided lack of pop culture around here. If we had late night television and day time talk shows that people actually watched, I think politicians could be more influential. We don't have celebrity endorsements (at least that anyone cares about) or major political gaffs with any air time (or any real comedians to perpetuate the joke). The political pop culture that is currently inflating the ratings of shows like Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show doesn't exist in Canada.

How can Canadian politics thrive in the current cultural climate?
